A Dress Fit For A Fairy-Tale Princess—Courtesy Of Donatella Versace

Cheburashka. Bremenskie Muzikanti. If you have a hard time pronouncing the table names at Natalia Vodianova’s White Fairy Tale Love Ball, you won’t be alone. “Natalia is driving the calligrapher crazy,” Giancarlo Giammetti said yesterday at his Left Bank home. The Russian supermodel is, as she put it, “in the last few hundred yards of a marathon,” preparing for the fundraiser for her Naked Heart Foundation being held at Valentino’s Chateau Wideville outside Paris tomorrow night. Vodianova’s kids’ favorite Soviet-era cartoons (Google the Russian names above for vintage clips) partly inspired the gala. “A charity fashion show isn’t a new idea; it’s been done by many people,” she said. “But I thought fairy-tale dresses—the ultimate Cinderella dresses—by the world’s top designers would be something interesting.” Forty-five of fashion’s finest agreed to create gowns for the evening’s auction. Vodianova thinks Donatella Versace’s kokoshnik dress (pictured) will be a hit. “She went for it,” she said. The funds raised will go to Naked Heart’s new efforts to support children with special needs. And what is the fairy-tale spinner herself wearing for the occasion? Valentino red, of course, “like Little Red Riding Hood.”
